I BOUGHT A 2016 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN WITH 77,438 MILES. THE VEHICLE RAN GREAT TILL THE END OF NOVEMBER 2018. AT WHICH TIME WE STARTED HAVING MAJOR ISSUES. 1ST THE VEHICLE WILL SELF ACCELERATE WITH TO EXCESSIVE SPEEDS OVER 80 MPH WITH NO ASSISTANCE. YOU HAVE TO HOLD THE BREAK TO KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL. 2ND YOU CAN TAKE THE KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION, CLOSE THE DOOR AND THE CAR CONTINUE TO RUN. 3RD WHEN STARTING THE VAN THE TRANSMISSION GOES INTO LIMP MODE NOT ALLOWING YOU TO SHIFT THE CAR TO REVERSE OR DRIVE. TO RELEASE THE YOU HAVE TO HIT THE SAFETY OVERRIDE SWITCH PLACE THE VAN IN GEAR AND THEN YOU ARE ONLY ABLE TO DRIVE TO THE SPEED OF 30 MPH. WE HAVE TAKEN THIS VAN TO THE SHOP THAT DRIVE TIME WARRANTY COMPANY DIRECTED US TO WHICH WAS PEP BOYS. THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO DO THE WORK THE VEHICLE NEEDED BUT STILL CHARGES US $50. DRIVE TIME SAID WE WOULD BE REIMBURSE FOR BUT NEVER HAPPENED. THEN DRIVE TIME DIRECTED US TO TAKE THE CAR TO MEINEKE THE DIAGNOSED THE VEHICLE WE PAID THE DEDUCTIBLE $100. DROVE THE VAN HOME 1 WEEK LATER IT WAS BACK AT MEINEKE TO BE REPAIRED AGAIN. MEINEKE ADVISED THAT THE PART THAT WAS UNDER WARRANTY CAUSE SEVER DAMAGE TO OTHER COMPONENTS OF THE VAN. DRIVE TIME AUTHORIZED THE WORK. WE WENT TO PICK UP THE VAN AS IT WAS COMPLETED MEINEKE ADVISED US IT WOULD BE $2700 FOR THE REPAIRS AS DRIVE TIME WAS NOT PAYING FOR IT. WE CONTACTED DRIVE TIME ON THIS THEY ADVISED US TO PICK THE VAN UP AND NOT TO PAY MEINEKE ANYTHING. SO WE WENT ROUND AND ROUND WITH DRIVE TIME AND MEINEKE FINALLY GETTING OUR VAN BACK. NOW 10 DAYS LATER IT IS DOING THE SAME THING. I HAVE 4 CHILDREN AND A WIFE THAT IS IN THIS VEHICLE THAT IS UNSAFE AND IS AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN.

POWER TRAIN

2/25/2019 - WAUKESHA, WI
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2016 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN. WHILE DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 70 MPH, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTED INTO NEUTRAL ON ITS OWN AND THE RPMS INCREASED TO 7,000. THE VEHICLE WAS COASTED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND SHUT OFF. THE VEHICLE WAS RESTARTED AND DRIVEN TO WILDE CHRYSLER JEEP DODGE RAM SOUTH STREET (262-544-5400, LOCATED AT 1710 WI-164, WAUKESHA, WI 53186) WHERE THE TECHNICIAN UPDATED THE COMPUTER AND STATED THAT THERE WERE NO OTHER FAILURES WITH THE VEHICLE. THE MANUFACTURER STATED THAT THE VEHICLE WAS OUT OF WARRANTY AND REFERRED THE CONTACT TO NHTSA. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT REPAIRED. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 134,000.

AFTER ONLY 27,000 MILES THE SLIDING DOOR ON THE DRIVERS SIDE WILL NOT UNLOCK/OPEN BY ANY MEANS LEAVING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OUT OF THE BACK IN CASE OFF AN EMERGENCY. ALSO THE PASSENGER SIDE SLIDING DOOR WILL NOT LOCK EVEN WHILE DRIVING WHICH MEANS SOMEONE COULD OPEN IT WHILE THE CAR IS MOVING AND FALL OUT. I BELIEVE DODGE HAS INSTALLED A BATCH OF BAD ACTUATORS FOR THESE DOORS. SEARCHING THE INTERNET I HAVE FOUND THIS IS HAPPENING A LOT.

SHORTLY AFTER GETTING MY VAN I FELT THAT IT DID NOT HANDLE PROPERLY. I EXPERIECED HYDRO PLANNING WHEN BRAND NEW TO ME. TRACKING UPON ACCELERATION WAS PORE. VERY POOR TRACKING AT ACCELERATION GOING INTO A TURN AT START UP SPEED. I CALLED CHRYSLER AND THEY SAID THERE HAD BEEN NO COMPLAINTS TO DATE. BY SUGGESTION, I PAID $100 FOR AN ALIGNMENT. THE ALIGNMENT DID NOT HELP WITH THIS MATTER. ANY TYPE OF PRECIPITATION AFFECTS THE TRACKING OF THE VEHICLE. ANY PAINTED LINES ON THE ROAD AFFECT TRACTION. IT SEEMS THAT THE TRACTION CONTROL IS THE PROBLEM, OR MAYBE THE YOKOHAMA AVID TIRES ARE THE PROBLEM. WHEN I ACCELERATE IN ANY GIVEN SITUATION MY TIRES WILL SPIN OR TRACTION CONTROL SLIPS BACK AND FORTH AS I CROSS OVER ANY REFLECTIVE SURFACES (LINES ON ROAD, OR STOP STRIPS, OR CROSSWALKS). I HAVE HAD TO LEARN TO STOP ON ROAD SURFACE, PRIOR TO CROSSING ANY DIFFERENTIATED SURFACES. RIGHT TURN ON RED IS MOSTLY FORBIDDEN, AS I MAY SPIN MY WAY OUT IN FRONT OF FASTER MOVING TRAFFIC. THIS VAN NOW HAS 24,000 MILES ON IT, AND THE TIRES NEED REPLACED FROM THE SPIN IN ACCELERATION.. AT 2 1/2 YEARS OLD, I AM CONCERNED ENOUGH TO TRADE FOR A DIFFERENT MAKE. I HAVE OWNED A 1992 DODGE CARAVAN, A 2007 TOWN & COUNTRY, AND NOW THIS 2016 DODGE CARAVAN. MY FRIEND WHO WORKS FOR THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA, HAS TO USE A NEW DODGE CARAVAN, ON OCCASION, OUT OF THEIR FLEET , HE TOO AGREED THAT TRACKING WAS AN ISSUE WTH THE VAN GOING STRAIGHT DOWN THE ROAD. I FIND IT VERY HARD TO BELIEVE THAT I AM ONE OF TWO PEOPLE TO COMPLAIN ON THIS VEHICLES HANDLING. TODAY 02/10/2019 WE RECEIVED ONE INCH OF SNOW. I WAS HEADING OUT FOR ERRANDS. MY TRACKING WAS HORRIBLE. I HAD TO ANTICIPATE ACTIONS OF OTHERS AN MYSELF WELL IN ADVANCE. I STOPPED AT A RED LIGHT ON A OTHER THAN LEVEL DOWN HILL SLOPE (VERY MILD), ANITICPATED VEHICLES AHEAD MOVING, I LEFT OF MY BRAKE TO ROLL. TURNING AT 5MPH, I LOST CONTROL

2/8/2019 - NESBIT, MS
BOUGHT THE CAR USED WITH 35,982 MILES. A YEAR AFTER I PURCHASED THE VAN MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. CHANGED THE OIL AND SPARK PLUGS. THE LIGHT STAYED ON AND CONTINUED TO RUN ROUGH. WE CONTACTED DODGE MULTIPLE TIMES TO BE TOLD MY CAR WASN+T UNDER WARRANTY. WE TOOK MY CAR TO BE PUT ON THE COMPUTER AND FOUND A FEW SMALL ISSUES. I BOUGHT A FEW PARTS FROM DODGE AND AGAIN TALKED TO THEM ABOUT THE WARRANTY. WAS TOLD IT STOPPED AT 30,000 MILES. TOOK MY CAR BACK TO THE MECHANIC AND WAS TOLD I HAVE LOW COMPRESSION IN CYLINDER TWO. I CALLED DODGE TO FIND OUT HOW MUCH THEY WOULD CHARGE ME TO FIX IT. TO FIND OUT MY CAR WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND I HAD JUST WENT OVER THE MILEAGE OF 60,000. SO I WAS LIED TO AND MY CAR IS STILL MESSED UP. I HAVE READ OVER AND OVER ABOUT THE MOTORS HAVING ISSUES AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE!!!!

MY REAR SLIDING DOOR'S ACTUATOR HAS GONE OUT ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE. THIS WAS NOTICED WHEN I PULLED INTO MY DRIVEWAY AND ATTEMPTED TO LET MY CHILDREN OUT OF THE CAR, SO IT WAS TURNED OFF. THE DOOR IS STUCK IN "LOCK" AND WILL NOT OPEN. IT WILL NOT OPEN MANUALLY, OR WITH ANY OF THE AUTOMATIC BUTTONS. THIS IS AN EXTREME SAFETY HAZARD IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT TO MY 3 UNDERAGE CHILDREN, AND APPARENTLY HAS BEEN A PROBLEM FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I AM GOING TO REQUEST IN THIS DESCRIPTION THAT A RECALL FINALLY BE ISSUED BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT BECAUSE THEY ARE T-BONED ON ONE SIDE AND TRAPPED IN THE CAR.
